My First OSAT Blog Hop By The Bay. If you have just hopped over from Jackie in Western Australia, welcome to a chilly United Kingdom. I am so excited to have been invited to be part of this fantastic Team. Our theme today is ‘Sale-a-Brate Every Occasion’. I was not totally sure what to make of the theme, but have gone for the fairly obvious choice of an any Occasion Project using something from the Sale-a-Bration Catalogue.
How can you not love the By the Bay stamp set in the Sale-a-Bration Brochure? It brought back very fond memories of family holidays in North Cornwall. I knew the moment I saw it at OnStage in November that this was going to have to be one of the first Sale-a-Bration items I chose. I love the main scene, so this is what I have chosen as my card. But, it is a tiny card! It is only 3 x 4″ (7.5 x 10 cm) but I love it! It was so easy to make. I just stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black a couple of times, using my Stamparatus, and then coloured it in. The colouring is so easy, it is just sketching with Stampin’ Blends. Not real colouring at all! I repeated the same process for the tag on the Tiny Treat Box.
Did you spot that I sneaked a second Sale-a-bration item into my project by using the Balmy Blue Ribbon from the Organdy Ribbon Combo? I could have used the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper to line the box. This would certainly have worked and would have included new product from the Spring/Summer Catalogue, but it just didn’t look right with the stamps. Instead I chose one of the papers from the Tranquil Textures pack, that worked much better.
Anyway, enough from me. I urge you to take a look at the projects that the others have made. As I write this I have not had a chance to look at them yet, but knowing their work, they are going to be fantastic!
